Event number 249
7th July 2018
You may have noticed it was another incredibly hot one this week, but some how 45 of you managed to record new personal bests while many of us just wilted in the heat.This week 393 people ran, jogged and walked the course, including 26 first timers.
There was an announcement before the race that we have been asked to hold a memorial parkrun in honour of Sze-Ming Cheung, a Catton regular who sadly died in a traffic accident in June. We are asking everybody to celebrate his life on August 4. Please cycle to the event if at all possible and wear any club colours you have in honour of this keen athlete who was an inspiration to many.
We had some impressive, unofficial milestones with David Hughes completing 450 runs and Heather Houghton completing 350. Julian Giles also completed 200 runs.
On official milestones, Gina Preston and John Miller both completed their 100th parkruns and junior runner Judith Turner completed her 10th. Keep it up all of you.
Each week we celebrate the achievements of a few of our runners. Well done to the following on achieving new PBs: Thom Partridge, Juliet Nicholls, Amanda Knowles and Srividya Sundararajan.
